Birthday Flowers


Alright, I will admit it, I love flowers. I don't care who buys them or even if I buy them for myself, it always brightens my day knowing I have a bouquet at home. I know they are impractical and short-lived, but I adore them. I always have and more than likely always will. My dear friend, Marion, brought me flowers for my birthday and they are beautiful. Thanks Marion. I have them on my computer desk, which is just big enough for my computer, but I want to look at them while I work.

Happiest of birthdays to you! Some of my favorite smells are for sale all over town now, with Easter right around the corner. Hyacinths and lilies...mmmm

Have a wonderful celebration! You get to celebrate for as many days as you have years...when you turn 21, you get 21 days to celebrate, you know! The flowers are lovely. Best wishes.

OOh, just lovely.
Happy birthday.
Flowers speak to the soul, I think that's why they can make us so happy just by being.

Bon Anniversaire!
No shame about the love of flowers and in Paris no less with all those lovely little markets! My apartment ALWAYS had fresh flowers when I was there but those roses you received where beyond beautiful!
The New Year in your neighborhood sounds like it was tons of fun -

I told my wife that she ought to "surprise" me with flowers every so often as I do for her. she thought not....who doesn't like getting flowers?

Anali, Beenzzz, Diamond lil, Lotus, Expat and Pam-Thanks!

Carra-I know. They are much like jewerly. Completely impractial but completely lovely.

Melissa-I think you should.

Farmgirlcyn-Sometimes the smells are the best part.

Geggie-If I use your logic, I am still technically celebrating.

Jay-I completely agree. Unfortunately when they speak to my soul, they usually say, "bye me."

Parisienne-I bet you had a better budget than I have!

Cityfarmer-I thought about it too late!

Seb-It's about time!

Misplaced-I completely agree. Your wife should buy you flowers!
